Recommended Posts

For the last event of this edition of the LOGOLYMPIAD, I decided to change the usual requirements for the Anniversary Patch event. The next installment of the LOGOLYMPIAD will be the tenth edition. In order to celebrate this, your task is to create an anniversary patch for the 10th edition of the LOGOLYMPIAD.

 

The winning patch will be the official logo for the tenth edition!

 

Requirements

  • Include the text “Tenth edition” in your design.
  • You may use and incorporate the current logo or part of the logo, but the overall design must be your own.

 

Current logo:

PDF File

 

Deadline: December 15th, 11:59AM Eastern Time

 

Guidelines for submitting your entry

 

Failure to follow the guidelines could result in your entry being inadvertently (or intentionally) excluded from judging.

 

Entries must be emailed to logolympiad (at) gmail (dot) com prior to the set deadline. Subject line should be the event number (Ex: Event 1). Once you submit your entry, it is considered final.

 

Entries must be submitted as .jpg, .gif, or .png formats. The file name format of the submission is: event#_yourusername.extension (Ex: event1_pollux.png). The file must be attached to your email.

 

All final entries must be 800x600 pixels with at least 70 pixels of white space at the bottom of the image. This means that your presentation has to fit in an 800x530 pixels window (800 pixels wide by 530 pixels high). I will NOT resize entries that are not properly done, so make sure it’s right.

 

The background of the entries should be solid white, unless otherwise specified. You must not use gradients, shadows, patterns, lines, etc. on your background.

 

Do not add any text, like labels, or images to your submission, unless otherwise specified. Do not add the team name, location, entry number, event type, etc.

 

Do not include your name or any other personal identifiers on your submission. Also, do not watermark your work. I will add a watermark to each entry before they get posted for judging. I will also provide each entry with a number. You are expected to keep the identity of your entry anonymous until the end of the event. If you think you know the identity of another designer, keep it to yourself. Anyone who exposes their identity or the identity of anyone else will be DQ’d.

 

You should receive an automatic reply once you submit your entry. If you don’t receive one, please PM me directly. If I see an issue with the format of your submission, I will contact you giving you a chance to resubmit. I will NOT, however, comment on the content of the submission.

You can use an X in your logo, for example "Logolympiad X", but you must have the mention "Tenth edition" somewhere. It can be a smaller text under the logo, etc.

I just want to make sure I've got it correct. Did this start in 2007 and it's been 10 years since the start, or did it start in 2008 and this is the 10th installment?

@HRC4: What hettinger_rl said. The first LOGOLYMPIAD was held in 2004. Next time the competition runs will be the tenth installment.

OOOOHHH. Gotcha. So it hasn't been held every year for the past 10 or so. This is just the 10th installment and nothing more. That will change up my approach slightly. Thanks for clearing it up.

When you mean it'll be the patch for next year's 'Lympiad it's going to replace the banner at the top correct? Or will it accompany the banner?

It should replace it completely, but I may work with whoever wins to make a complete package using the current logo and the anniversary patch.

I received an entry with the year "2018" on it.

 

Don't put any year on it. While the next time around will be the tenth edition, I don't know whether it will run in 2018 or later. That is why I specifically mentioned the "Tenth edition" but not the year.

 

The member who submitted can alter and resubmit the entry.
